About mental health
Mental health is about the way we think and feel and our ability to deal with life’s ups and downs. Anyone can suffer from a mental health issue: at least one in six people will experience a mental health problem in any one year. Mental health-related illness is the leading cause of long-term absence from work. There are lots of things we can do to help ourselves to develop good mental health and to manage how we respond to situations to minimize risks to our health and well-being.
